Editor, Times-Union:

Please remember when voting a straight Republican ticket, you need to pick out the Republican Township Advisory Board candidates individually. If you hit only the button to vote a straight Republican ticket, the machines will not cast a vote for at-large candidates. You can still hit the straight Republican ticket button, but then go back and mark the individual Republican Township Advisory Board candidates.  

This year this affects the township advisory board candidates. In November of 2023, it will affect at-large town and city council candidates. In November of 2024, it will affect County Council at-large candidates.
